IP Creamy Tortellini, Spinach And Chicken Soup

IP Creamy Tortellini, Spinach And Chicken Soup

I made cheese tortellini with mushrooms and sausage, two days ago for the guys, after a long day of taking down a large tree on our property.

I made a lot, so there was plenty of leftover. I remembered this recipe I had made last year, and everyone had enjoyed it. There was a large pot of leftover, I just poured the whole bag of tortellini, as a what the heck moment.

I used this exact recipe with the leftovers, so this one had chicken and sausage, as well as mushrooms. I was out of half and half, so I added 1/3 cup of heavy cream to 2/3 cup of 2% milk.

This recipe was a life saver! They devoured it! I made a lot of it, and I’m glad I did. The guys spent the day, coming in and out of the cold, from working on the tree, to scooping bowls of this. Jim said, “add this to your recipe file!”

I recommend you try this, and make it your own. In the future, I’ll continue to add mushrooms to this; oh, and I used canned tomatoes yesterday, I use what I have on hand.

Black Forest Pinwheels

These Black Forest Ham pinwheels are a fun snack, and a great flavor. I also made with dried cranberries, instead of dried cherries.

I’ve been making a variety of pinwheels the past few days with leftovers. I came across this interesting recipe today.

Jim said, “these pinwheel ideas are fun!” The guys are enjoying the finger foods

Green Beans with Tomatoes

Quick, easy Green bean dish

I make this green bean dish every summer, and Thanksgiving time, because it is tasty, quick and only 3 ingredients. Now and then, if I have on hand, I’ll add basil and now and then feta cheese.

I remember the first time I made this 25 years ago from a quick cooking magazine. My father in law asked me for the recipe after dinner, while we were watching a movie. It’s been in my recipe file ever since


Maple Sweet Potatoes

Maple sweet potatoes: 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut in to 1 inch pieces, 1 cup of water in IP (you can put the potatoes in to a steam basket or just drop them in the water which is what I did); – set the pressure release to sealing; Select steam – set cooking time to 5 minutes at high pressure.

When finished – Quick release; strain the potatoes; add potatoes back to the pot –add 2 Tbsp unsalted butter; 3 Tbsp of dark maple syrup; 1/4 tsp kosher salt; 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon. Using a potato masher – mix this all together

If you want: toast some pecans and sprinkle over the top along with 1/2 tsp orange zest

For a casserole: Put this all in a dish – preheat over to 325 – top with marshmallows. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the marshmallows are golden brown on top.

We prefer maple syrup over brown sugar in a sweet potato casserole, and only toasted pecan topping. If you don’t have maple syrup – try brown sugar – the main part of sharing this dish I just made is I used the steam function. The potatoes did not take long, and they were a perfect consistency
